BDC Research Room Schedule for July and August

by

BDC Panel Logo with Tagline  Everyone deserves a break – even me.  I’m taking some long delayed personal time in July and August which means some curtailment of the BDC’s usual and customary services. Anticipated schedule adjustments  and service restrictions are outlined below.

One of the best pieces of advice that any researcher can take to heart is: “Contact the Research Facility ahead of time to make arrangements and to confirm that it will be open the days and times you’d like to do your  work.” As of this writing, here are the list of known schedule adjustments for the BDC Research Room over the course of the Summer. There may be more and last minute adjustments at that – depending on staffing challenges and the weather. (Hurricane season began June 1 after all). Please make a note about these scheduled Research Room adjustments to our customary hours of public service.

July-Research-Room-ScheduleMon., July 4: All units of the Beaufort County Library are closed for Independence Day.
Thurs., July 7: Research Room open 9 am to Noon; closed Noon to 1 pm; open 1 pm to 5 pm
Fri., July 8: Research Room open 9 am to Noon; closed Noon to 1 pm; open 1 pm to 5 pm
Mon., July 11: Research Room open 9 am to Noon; closed Noon to 1 pm; open 1 pm to 5 pm

Restriction of Consultation Services, August 1 – August 24, 2016:

Because I will be away, I cannot schedule Research Consultation appointments from August 3rd through August 19th. Even though Ashley is a quick learner, a good digital technician, and has great public service skills, she is not a qualified and credentialed reference librarian nor a registered reference archivist yet. Until that happens, I will handle all the reference transactions.

While I am away, reproduction permission requests are suspended. So if you’re working on an exhibit or publication for which you’d like to get permission to use some of our resources, you’d best get on that pronto. There will be no reproduction permissions processed between August 1st and August 24th – which means you won’t be getting any high resolution (or low resolution) images of materials we hold during this time frame. Please understand that Ashley is not authorized to grant reproduction permissions of our holdings.
